I’ve Been Swanned!

As you may have noticed, I’ve been a little absent from the blogosphere lately.  I was in AZ visiting my family for about 2 1/2 weeks.  Not only was it a nice visit, it was a nice break from the blogging world, Facebook, email, Twitter, Etsy, etc…  But I’m back home now and happy to be returning to blogland. 

I was so happy when I returned to find a little box from my bloggy friend, Ali, over at My Third True Love containing the cutest little swan.


With the sweetest little card.


If you’re familiar with her blog (if you’re not, you totally should be!), she has a thing for swans.  She has amassed quite a collection and can hardly pass through a thrift store without taking home a lonely little swan (and trust me, they’re all over the thrift stores).  But I must say, she does have impeccable taste so she is choosy about what swans make the “cut”.

And now I can officially say that I’ve Been Swanned!  I just have to find the perfect spot for this little beauty to reside.

Any kindred swan collectors out there?  Is the swan the new owl?  I’ve actually heard that the fox is the new owl, but I haven’t really seen evidence of that yet.  Thoughts?


  1. YAy for swans!!! I'm so glad you like it :)
